Looking for a manual for a trident 9685 with tv. I'm trying to get output to my tv but nothing works. Can you offer any suggestions.
I answered a question about the Providia 9685 chipset back in issue 31 --- but that had no mention of a TV tuner.
There is a "video4linux" project that supports at least the BTTV (Hauppage et al) chipsets. I've never used it but you can feel free to hit Yahoo! and browse through the 2200 hits that you'll get with a search string like:
... see what that nets you.
